TUCSON, Ariz. - U.S. Customs and Border Protection is seeking public comment on border wall proposals in Pima and Cochise Counties.

According to the agency, the project would replace "dilapidated and outdated designs." About 63 miles of bollard wall would replace existing pedestrian fencing and vehicle barriers. Road construction improvement and lighting installation would also be included.

The bollard wall, which would stretch among Organ Pipe, San Pedro River and San Bernardino areas, would be 18 to 30 feet high, built from concrete-filled six square-foot diameter bollards.

Those who would like to comment on the project have until July 5 to email commentsenv@cbp.dhs.gov. Comments should reference “Pima and Cochise Counties Border Infrastructure Projects” in the subject of the email.

You can also mail comments to CBP headquarters at 1300 Pennsylvania Ave. 6.5E Mail Stop 1039 Washington, DC 20229-1100.
